Cody Bellinger, Dodgers Complete Sweep of Diamondbacks, Advance to NLCS

Cody Bellinger celebrated his return to Arizona with an all-out catch and tumble into the dugout

Los Angeles Times sports columnist Bill Plaschke breaks it down. This team will not move onto the NLCS and await for the victor of the Nationals/Cubs series.

The Dodgers defeated the Nationals in five taut games in last year's NLDS, then lost to the Cubs in the NLCS, but both teams seem vulnerable this season.

Bellinger and Austin Barnes homered off Zack Greinke. The Diamondbacks put only one runner on base in those four innings and managed to get only two balls out of the infield. Through four innings he allowed just two hits and no runs.

Cody Bellinger, a local Arizona product, had a night to remember in front of his friends and family.

The Dodgers' 1-16 skid from late August into September seemed unusual while it was happening.

Cubs-Nationals: If Monday's battle for momentum in the best-of-five series wasn't tantalizing enough, there were also lingering questions about Washington starter Max Scherzer's readiness and how Cubs left-hander Jose Quintana - who came over from the White Sox in July - would handle his first playoff appearance. "Usually I keep that stuff behind the scenes and say that stuff, but just my emotions got me there".

Ray escaped trouble in the third inning, despite continuing with his control issues.

Iran's leader warns implications of controversial vote in Iraq
The Iranian President said that Tehran and Ankara reject the independence referendum in Iraq's Kurdistan. Erdoğan said the referendum had no legitimacy and had only been recognized by Israeli regime.

The Dodgers lead 2-0 and can eliminate the Diamondbacks when the National League Division Series moves to Phoenix on Monday.

Greinke walked five in the first three innings, his season high.

Meanwhile, his counterpart, Yu Darvish, was absolutely filthy through the first four innings for the Dodgers. Darvish limited the damage to the lone run after a spectacular inning ending catch by Bellinger as he caught it falling over the dugout railing. The D-backs replaced Greinke with LHP Jorge De La Rosa.

Zack Greinke #21 of the Arizona Diamondbacks pitches against the Kansas City Royals during the first inning at Kauffman Stadium on September 29, 2017 in Kansas City, Missouri. The Dodgers won 104 games this season and took the NL West title for the fifth straight year, and in two of those seasons, including this one, the Diamondbacks were runners-up. Only four batters reached base all night for the Diamondbacks, including Daniel Descalso with a homer.

Led by a big Japanese right-hander and a rookie from just down the road, the Los Angeles Dodgers are headed back to the NL Championship Series.

An RBI groundout in the first inning was nice. After he struck out the side in the fourth, ending it with a nasty, 96-mph sinker to whiff Arizona slugger J.D. Martinez, Darvish came off the mound howling and fist-pumping. On Monday, his bold philosophies were on full display, beginning with a seemingly controversial lifting of Darvish after he hit pinch-hitter Christian Walker in the helmet to lead off the sixth.
